I think this is going to be my holiday card image this year.

Christmas Cards Available
(Other merchandise also.)
This is the time of year to think about buying Christmas cards. I have several designs available at my Zazzle store. (Lately they’ve been running some 60% off sales on holiday cards, which makes them a reasonable price. Just look for the coupon code.
Today’s is HOLIDAYZSAVE, but that only lasts until midnight tonight. Black Friday’s coming up, though, so they’re bound to have more good discounts soon. The code BLKFRIDAYZAZ will get you 60% off until the end of the day 11/25/18.) The code ZCYBRMONDAYZ will get you up to 75% off on some projects. I think it’s 60% on cards. Until the end of the day Cyber Monday. And I have a coupon code for 60% off cards, among other things. Good until midnight on Monday, Dec 3rd. Use ZCYBRMONDAY2 at checkout. Use DECKTHEHALLS at checkout for 60% off cards until midnight on Friday, Dec 7th.
My latest is the Christmassy Streetcar that my Dad requested.
Last year’s card was my family ice skating. Sorry it’s not a more universal image. It’s very specifically my family, complete with Katie in her Canadian flag hoodie. I have considered reworking it with polar bears or something skating instead, but I haven’t gotten around to it.
Before that was a snowman family. (Also available in portrait orientation and on other merchandise.)
A single snowman with a cardinal perched on it’s hand/branch. (Also available in portrait orientation and on other merchandise. It’s particularly pretty on a coffee mug.)
And, for the more new age among you, a Stonehenge winter solstice card.
There are also tons of other products up on my Zazzle store. Mostly prints and cards, but other merchandise as well. More-or-less any decent images that I still hold the copyright on are fair game for Zazzle printing. If there’s any of my work that you’d like to see printed on something and I don’t already have it up, just let me know. I’d be happy to set it up for you.
I’ve illustrated two books that are available also. They’d make good Christmas gifts.

(Preview images were generated by Zazzle. They own the greeting card templates, I own the images pictured on the cards.)
Ogerita Christmas Card
My Dad wanted a Christmas card based on the Ogerita trolley car I just finished. So, I Christmased-up the trolley for him. The card’s here on my Zazzle store, in case anyone else would like one.
We’ve been ice skating a lot this year, so I drew this.

Footbridge Over Stream
A footbridge over the Little Cedar Creek at Ernie Miller Nature Center in Olathe, KS.
This might be my Christmas card design this year.
Or does it look better with more painterly colors?
I made some cards and things with this design.
